Ah... What's old is new again. When I started with Ed-Tech (way back before the turn of the century) I taught Logo as an instroductor computer language. Pascal and Basic were also very commonly taught in school. I like the symbolic manipulation of logo in particular. Honestly, I never really grasped geometry until I started teacing kids how to drive that turtle! ~ Dennis O'Connor
